Cherokee, Marshall County Officials Elected to Statewide Association Leadership Posts

Marcie Foster and David Kelley Take Positions for 2016-2017 Year

County Commissioners from Cherokee County and Marshall County have been elected to leadership positions in the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA), a statewide association representing Alabama’s 67 county governments. Commissioners Marcie Foster and David Kelley were elected to the positions at the ACCA’s 88th Annual Convention held earlier this month.

Commissioner Marcie Foster (Cherokee) was elected to ACCA’s board of directors.

Marci Foster 1Marcie has a reputation of strong and steady leadership among her colleagues in county government, so I know she will be a valuable member of the Association’s board of directors,” said ACCA President Bill Stricklend. “County government in Alabama continues to undergo significant changes. The Association relies on board members like Marcie, who have shown a long-term commitment to improving county government, to provide the necessary leadership to help counties face these challenges head-on.


Commissioner David Kelley (Marshall) was elected to the ACCA Legislative Committee.

County governments are often limited in what they can do because they are a creation of the state,” said ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield. “That means it is incredibly important for counties to have a strong working relationship with members of Legislature. Serving on this committee is a huge responsibility that impacts the daily lives of each and every Alabama citizen. David has proven time-and-again that he is up to the task.

Both Foster and Kelley represent ACCA’s District 3, which includes Cherokee, DeKalb, Etowah, Jackson, and Marshall counties.

The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization speaking for all 67 counties with ONE voice. It promotes improved county government services in Alabama, offers educational programs for county officials and their staff members, administers insurance programs for county governments and employees, offers legal advice, and represents the interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies.
